Embellished With A Fantasy

A P Von K'Ory
A P Von K’Ory Author Interview

The Chase follows a man who has it all, but falls for a woman who is able to resist his charm and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to be with her. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

My inspiration for the book was my own personal relationship with my husband, who is also an aristocrat of French-German descent. I just wrote a blog article on this which you can find here:

I first wrote about a fictive form of our relationship in my multi-award-winning Bound to Tradition Trilogy, which is very literary and an intercultural study in itself. Then I expanded on that to the next generation – the youngest daughter Shana, and her steamy, complicated romance with Roman.

Roman is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind his character’s development?

Let me put it this way; Roman is a young version of my husband, embellished with a fantasy or two of my own (but no secret to my husband) woven into the story.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The vagaries of interracial attraction and relationships, pointing out the pitfalls in stereotyping that doesn’t exist in real life, and including the rough patches as well as the exhilarating ones. These relationships tend to be volatile in a positive sense and very enriching. It’s not a wonder that the Bound to Tradition Trilogy won so many awards in four different continents!

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I’ve completed 4 books in the GOLDEN SHANA SERIES

and I’m working on the 5th book – GOLDEN SHANA: THE CONQUEST – which I hope will conclude the end of Shana and Roman’s story. Those two seem to demand more from me each time I finish a book about them. We’ll see. Apart from that, I’m working on the second book of my psychological thriller LONDON SPARKS (https://www.amazon.com/LONDON-SPARKS-P-VON-KORY/dp/B085K5JZSM), as well as a new thriller UNTAMEABLE set in New York and The Hamptons. The first paragraph of UNTAMEABLE, consisting of only two sentences in the prologue, sets the theme of the book:

I was eight years old when my mother said the three familiar words that turned me into a murderess less than an hour later. At that age, I already knew things some septuagenarians have no idea about.

Love, a word Roman can hardly spell, hits him when he sees Shana one evening. She’s the first woman not dropping to her knees at his mere presence. Used to getting whatever he wants, he chases her. Only to discovers that she prefers the girls. Roman can’t let that deter him. But is he for once up against his own comeuppance? At any rate, he needs assistance, which comes in the form of Alyssa, Shana’s BFF. Trouble crops up when Alyssa is all too ready and willing to drop on her knees for him. Roman can’t get anywhere near Shana on his own. Would he start anything with Alyssa as long as this finally leads him to meet Shana in person?

Then there’s Marie, his current companion who has a life-changing surprise for him.
